How to Help
What do I say to a child who tells me he/she is being abused?
I believe you.
I’m glad you told me.
I’m sorry this happened to you.
It’s not your fault.
You are not to blame.
What should I do?
Report the abuse to your local police department or sheriff’s office.
Or Call Child Protective Services at (541) 440-3373
Ask for a child abuse screener.
Have information: child’s name and abuse disclosed
You do not have to give your name.
